Forging the Fellowship // quests, characters, and interrogations

Hello, lovelies! It's been a long time since I've been tagged for anything (thank the Valar that everyone finally realized I'm no longer eligible for the Leibster Award...), and I can't say I'm disappointed about any of it. Blog tags have an evil tendency to pile up and suck the life from your brain. It's …

Unruly Characters and Awkward Interviews // meet the cast of Aeterna

I would like to formally recant a statement I made last week: "Boy, NaNoWriMo is easy!" [insert negative adjectives here] The biggest downfall with nano is that all my creative energy gets channeled into my book, with none left over for the blog. This results in stress, scrambling last minute to churn out something half-way …

Of Characters and Concept Designs: The Artistic World of Aeterna

The sun is bright, the wind is cold, and the strange Sarah creature has entered into Week #2 of NaNoWriMo. Surprisingly, all of her primary psychological functions are still mostly intact. Key Word = Mostly. Aeterna hit 80,000 words a couple days ago, and that in itself is enough to blow all my psychological functions …

Villains and Various Rants (updates, nanowrimo, and a tag)

Whazzup, folks? (Oh, that was bad. Let's try this again.) Pleasant morning, my wild herd of minions! (Except it's technically afternoon.) I hope you've noticed the snazzy new graphics around here. The beautiful logo and newsletter button are courtesy of Kendra Lynne, who deserves a massive huzzah for her efforts. Can we take a moment …

The Enigmas of an Introvert’s Notebook

Writers are an odd lot. Yes, I know, statement of the century. But seriously. We wander around graveyards with the express purpose of stealing dead people's names, space out of conversations to contemplate which innocent character we're going to murder next, and hurt ourselves on purpose so we can "know what it feels like". (At …

About that Book… (plus a new title, and other cool stuff)

SO. You may remember a post I did back in September, when I announced that I was taking an official leave-of-absence from my book, The Silvershaw of Glenborn, to explore other stories and hopefully get the pain to subside in my neck. (Boy, that was a run-on sentence.) Well. No matter how hard I try, I …

Ink Pens, Abstracts, and the End of All Things (mainly art class)

Monday was the last day of art class, and I have but one thing to say to you all: FREEEEEEEEEEEEDOM. *wild screeching* *energetic fist-pumping* *crazed cackling* *flips the table* I get to paint what I want now. No more modern art. No more mutilated-looking fish. Nothing but a blank canvas and the prospect of as …

Blue Sky Tag (AKA me rambling about myself)

Well what do you know. I've been tagged. Tremendous thanks, hand shaking, and purple glitter go to the amazing Kate Flournoy of The Inky Notebook, along with strong encouragement for my peeps to go check out her blog, because it's pretty cool. (And SO BEAUTIFUL, oh my goodness. What's with these people and their beautiful …

Van Gogh, Da Vinci, and a Cool Little Fish Child

Heeeeey, guys... I'm totally not embarrassed about failing to post last week. Are you embarrassed? 'Cause I'm certainly not. *cough* There was a reason though. See? I'm not completely lazy. The reason, guys, is... None of your business. Moving on. This week, I was racking my brain for the easiest things to post about so …
